What Can I Do to Help My Pest Technician Eradicate A Bed Bug Problem?

This is a difficult question to answer as bed bugs are a very tough and hardy insect. They can survive undetected for years as you may not have a reaction to them and they are small and only come out at night.

Identifying the bed bugs is the important first step in treating an infestation and Newcastle Pest Exterminator staff are experts in such a task. You need to make sure you do not have another type of biting insect such as mosquitoes or fleas.

There are DIY methods available for treating bed bugs however treatment is very time consuming and you may come into contact with chemicals that are not recommended. It is also very important to know where the hotspot breeding areas are so treatment is targeted. Effective methods you can use to reduce bed bug numbers are to vacuum your carpet regularly and wash your bedding and clothing in high temperature water.

At Newcastle Pest Exterminators we use both chemical and non-chemical methods of treatment to make sure you are your family and pets are safe.

Do You Have A Bed Bug Problem?

Bed bugs are one of the most complicated pest your likely to encounter at home (termites are another good example). Bed bugs are difficult to see and they can lay dormant for 6 months so you may not even know you have them until its too late.

There are a number of things you can do if you think you may have bed bugs. It is important not to move furniture around your house as an infestation will spread rapidly if furniture is moved. It is also important not to throw your bedding and other furniture out. Don’t assume bed bugs are only in your bed, bedframe, mattress or headboard, you can also find them in the most discreet places in carpets, lounges and other furniture and clothing. Caravans and tents are another place that bed bugs may be found.

It is important that you don’t stay at, or visit, other peoples homes as the bed bugs will ride with you and infest the new residence. Your best bet is to stay home and call a Bed Bug Expert from Newcastle Pest Exterminators. Bed bugs can be quickly treated if the correct methods are used.

Do not throw away sample bugs you have collected. Pick them up with clear tape if possible and seal them inside a ziplock bag. They will help our expert Pest Technicians to identify your bugs.

Don’t assume you are the only one being bitten keeping in mind that some people do not react to bed bug bites at all (bites may cause an allergic reaction). It is important not to throw away clothing or start washing UNTIL you have a consultation with one of our Expert Pest Technicians.

Don't worry, in most cases, bed bugs are easily treatable!
